Brötzmann Vinyl, CD & tapes by Brötzmann at Norman Records
It's always a good time for Brötzmann, especially when the old sax-man is playing with the unbeatable rhythm section of William Parker and Hamid Drake. Totally intuitive and highly inventive interplay is the name of the game. The sounds of Song Sentimentale were recorded live in front of a rapt audience at London’s Cafe Oto last year: the record is released by Oto’s own Otoroku label.
What happens when you cross a German saxophone player, an American guitarist, and a Japanese shamisen and guitar player? Why, you get Two City Blues 1. Brötzmann, Heino and O’Rourke collaborated to record two tracks in two days between the three of them. This will undoubtably turn out to be something real special!
